This year, on Saturday, April 18, record stores around the world will take part in the hallowed event. That mainly entails promotions, but there are also in-store events and a list of titles released only at record stores.
This weekend brings outdoor festivals, Record Store Day, comedy and more. As always, Xpress highlights the best in low-cost weekend entertainment.
